New African Filter Shrimp
Got me an African filter shrimp!
However, hes been hiding in a very secluded and dark spot for the past two days. These shrimp typically hang out in the current and filter feed, hence the name. Now he/she could just be getting used to the surroundings which is completely reasonable, but as we approach 3+ days, I am beginning to worry just a bit.

maybe hes coming out during the nights to feed?
"The African Filter Shrimp should be kept in community fish tank with small,
peaceful fish or in a shrimp tank, throughout the day, they usually seek refuge under stones and among
plants so a well planted tanks is essential."

I had a bamboo shrimp and he did the same thing. Perhaps he is hiding because he is trying to molt? I did find that my shrimp was more active at night.
